Where is Derwent Road?
Freehold is one of our most requested areas of Lancaster. Probably because it's one of the greenest! Residents initially move here due to sought after schools and excellent motorway links.
They like the fact you can walk into the city, yet just a 5 minute stroll brings you to the park. They tell us there is a great sense of community, whether it's just getting to know your neighbours through to joining in the local events at The Gregson Centre.
We love it as it's one of the few places you can get a period home with a garden!
Williamsons Park and Lancaster Royal Grammar School are also just around the corner making this area very popular with family buyers.
Make your way to the front door at Number 40 Derwent Road, step inside into the handy vestibule. Immediately you'll notice the stunning stained glass window in the porch door, setting the tone for what to expect beyond.
The welcoming entrance hall is bright and light, offering access straight in to the dining area. The kitchen and living room can also be accessed from here and the stairs straight ahead lead you up to the first floor.
First, let's start in the bay fronted living room...
The ground floor living accommodation
The bay fronted lounge is a cosy space, the ornamental gas fire to the centre creates a warm focal point. The ornate cornicing enhances the period feel whilst the bay window creates a bright and airy feel.
The dining space located to the rear of the home has a timeless feel, the multi fuel burning stove and built in cabinetry are welcomed additions. The space is open-plan to the entrance hall and partially open plan to the kitchen, creating the perfect space for entertaining.
The modern fitted kitchen provides ample storage space and houses integrated appliances such as a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven and microwave. There is space for a dining table in here too, great for casually dining. The uninterrupted views to Lancaster Castle from the kitchen sink will be hard to beat.
The first floor bedrooms, bathroom & en-suite
Take the stairs up to the first floor, here you will find three of the home's bedrooms, an en-suite shower room and the bathroom.
The bedroom located to the front of the home is a generous size, spanning the width of the property there is ample space for a kingsize bed and all necessary furnishings. The two windows flood the space with natural light and the high ceilings allow for a spacious feel. The en-suite shower room boasts a modern three piece suite with an easily accessible walk in shower.
To the rear of the home, you will also find a further two bedrooms, both with equally stunning views across Lancaster's rooftops towards Lancaster Castle and the Lakeland Hills. One of which is a generous size single and lends itself perfectly to a home office.
The second bedroom found to the rear of the home is again a double bedroom, the soft neutral decor creates a great space to relax and unwind before a good nights sleep.
The three piece bathroom boasts a contemporary white suite which is complete with a shower above the bath. The room is fully tiled in a fashionable manner for ease and convenience.
The master bedroom & wet room
Take the stairs up to the second floor, here you will find the master suite. Immediately upon entering this space you will be drawn to the two windows, the view gets better and better the higher you work your way up the home.
The master bedroom has a modern yet in keeping feel, the decor is crisp and fresh and there is a wonderfully private feel to this space. Eaves storage space is available and there is plenty of room for a kingsize bed and all necessary furnishings.
The master bedroom also has its own en-suite wet room with uninterrupted views of Lancaster Castle.
The converted basement, rear yard & garage
The basement at Number 40 Derwent Road has been fully converted, accessed via a trap door in the kitchen with a fixed staircase.
The basement is a great space, multi-functional, perhaps a playroom, home office or if you run your own business from home, a rear access to this space means it could work perfectly for when clients come to visit. There is also a handy WC.
The rear yard at Derwent Road is a great size space, offering a low maintenance outdoor area the whole family can enjoy. The perfect blank canvas to create your own oasis. Access can be gained to the front of the property and a garage to the rear.
The garage is a large space with power and light. Excellent for storage or perhaps you could even park your car in here.
